About The Advanced Macrobiotic Course
If you’re looking to understand macrobiotics at the deepest of levels, it is imperative to add small amounts of information over a long period of time. Although the previous courses have allowed you to immerse yourself in the basics, and even some of the more granular aspects of macrobiotics, the SHI Advanced Macrobiotic Course, formerly known as the “Master Your Health (MYH)” course, should be spread out over time. There is so much information included in this course, that it would be lost without taking the time to apply it to your life. Each module should be learned, applied, and restudied for at least one month and then revisited throughout the course of a year.
The material also continues to expand itself and each module that you take will exponential increase your knowledge of previous lessons. This self-paced, immersive course is the most comprehensive macrobiotics education available and combines decades of experience with the most well-respected macrobiotic approaches through history.
In order to ensure that the content of this course offers the highest level of valuable, the Beginner Macrobiotic Course is required as a prerequisite. Additionally, for full SHI Macrobiotics Certification, two SHI-sponsored on-site educational events are required.
Taught by world-renowned teachers & counselors Denny & Susan Waxman, along with the esteemed faculty of SHI, students receive the benefits of over 6 decades of experience in all areas of macrobiotic practice and teaching packed into one comprehensive program. Students can expect to leave the program with a richly detailed foundation of understanding and application that surpasses in comprehensive richness all current offerings in plant-based cooking and lifestyle practices.
The advanced course takes previous concepts and principles covered in the Beginner Macrobiotic Course and the Intermediate Macrobiotic Course and practically and deeply applies them to all aspects of modern life and health. Upon finishing the course, students who choose the entire program (both online and on-site) receive certification for guiding others to health with non-life threatening illnesses in the macrobiotic tradition.
You can register for modules all throughout the year (NOT just January 1st!). But, the majority of students like to start during the first month of the year and that facilitates our group discussions and the buddy system that we use.
For our students who have already completed the Intermediate course, you can begin the advanced course with module 4 and will be credited a price deduction for the first three modules. Whatever your circumstances, becoming a student in the advanced course may allow for many custom options to learn the SHI Approach to Macrobiotic Practice.
By the end of the course, we hope you will agree that even as a predominantly online course, it is still the most comprehensive macrobiotics training on the planet!
